Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonoma State University has transitioned to remote instruction for Spring 2021. Employees continue to work remotely in almost all departments. Email is the best way to communicate with our faculty and staff. Please see the SSU COVID-19 site for more information.

Sign-Up for new Student Employees


Congratulations on your student employment with Sonoma State University. Please read the information below carefully as it contains important information regarding your employment and sign-up process.

Who Needs to Attend?

A sign-up is required prior to beginning work for new student employees or returning student employees who have not worked at Sonoma State University within the past three years.

Per federal requirements, you must present document(s) that demonstrates your identity and your eligibility to work in the United States to meet the legal requirements of the Immigration and Reform Control Act.  You MUST have your original, unexpired document(s) at the time of the sign-up.  You can find the list of acceptable documents here or on the 3rd page of the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9.  Employees may present one selection from List A or a combination of one selection from List B and one selection from List C.  If you do not have your documents, you will not be admitted into a sign-up session.  

Sign-up Sessions

Once you have your documents, please email Human Resources to schedule a remote sign-up session on or before your first day of work.

  • Please note that it is required that your name and Social Security Number are reported exactly as stated on your Social Security card to the Internal Revenue Service and California Franchise Tax Board. To help expedite this verification process please have your original, non-laminated Social Security Card during the remote sign-up.  If you do not have your original card please advise us at the time of sign-up.  For future use you may request a new card from the Social Security Administration.
